Frequently Asked Questions
How is NUS-ACS different from NUS Chemical Sciences Society (CSS)?
CSS is more oriented towards student life and welfare, such as organizing orientation camps, free end-of-semester dinners and selling Past-Year-Paper solutions. NUS ACSSC is more focused on academic and career guidance, through organizing industrial visits, career talks, and publishing free research and internship reviews.
How frequent are club meetings?
Club meetings are called on a need-to basis, usually during event planning phase.
How heavy is the commitment?
This is dependent on the incumbent EXCO, but current practice is to plan and execute events mostly during school holidays. Hence, commitment is light during school term, and heavy during summer and winter breaks.
Can non-Chemistry majors join?
Yes, this Chapter is open to all Science majors. Do note, however, that all events are targeted at current and incoming Chemistry students.
What can I get out of it as a member?
You attain first-hand experience at planning and executing events. You also get to propose events you feel fit in with the aims of this Chapter. As an NUS ACSSC member, you have the chance to embark on a club-sponsored trip to the annual ACS National Meeting.
